The Centre for Visual Culture is Cambridge’s dedicated interdisciplinary space for researching the visual / visual research:
- forging connections between research, display and practice
- foregrounding the university’s collections and its array of display and exhibition opportunities
- fostering collaborations across the University and its collections, including its founding partner institutions: the Department of History of Art, the Fitzwilliam Museum, Kettle’s Yard, and the Hamilton Kerr Institute
- encouraging fresh voices and perspectives, especially from underrepresented fields and geographies
The CVC is relaunching in 2021-22 as Cambridge Visual Culture with a new team of Co-Directors, new initiatives, and a redesigned website, coming soon.
We support a wide range of research activities including:
- The Visual Culture Seminar which meets periodically throughout the year
- Funding calls to support research into the visual across Cambridge; visit the Funding Opportunities page to find out more about our new Visiting Fellowships programme for 2022
CVC hosts a range of research projects and supports research grant applications. Informal enquires should be addressed to one of the CVC’s Co-Directors.
